Susan Brasch, painter

Susan’s work will be featured in the Columbus Art Gallery from June 11th thru August 9th 2018.

Artist statement and short bio:

As I look back over my career, I see many different types of series.  As a painter, I have explored many avenues from abstract/abstract expressionism to somewhat realism to highly realistic. I have different eras of painting projects used to illustrate and to experiment with the theme that I was interested in at the time.  This show will be a smattering of this work over time, showing some to the many themes and subjects I painted in the last 30 years: Tessellations, Aerial Landscapes, Glyphs, Trees, Deep Shade Gardens, and my present abstracts.

As an artist, I have exhibited in galleries locally, regionally, throughout the USA, South America, and Europe.  I have always valued my diversity in media and theme and the use of metaphor. My interest in variety and experimentation translated to my workshops, helped me as an artist-in-residency in the schools and communities with the Nebraska Arts Council (1987-2012); and presently, is utilized in my Joint-Venture Art Program, where I create art commissions for private and corporate clients with the client’s input.

My work has been in 24 solo and traveling shows, featured in 297 juried and group shows and I have created 205 corporate and private commissions. My artwork regionally is in MONA, Doane College Rall Gallery, and many private and corporate collections.  I am pleased to be showing in Columbus this summer and hope that you find something in this variety of work worthy of your viewing time. Thank you.

Missoula Children’s Theatre presents “Gulliver’s Travels”



The Missoula Children’s Theatre International Tour Project will make stars of kids in grades 1-12. The week long theatre residency provides an opportunity for kids to perform in an original musical comedy complete with costumes, sets, choreography, and lyrics that empower children. A team of Tour Directors develop and produce a full-scale musical with 50-60 local children as cast members, directors and technical crew. There are roles especially suited for all ages, skill and experience levels. No advance preparation is necessary just come and enjoy the FUN!

Auditions, intensive rehearsals, workshops, and finished performances for the public are all part of the residency. A participation fee of $45.00 for those cast in the production covers the entire week’s residency, the theater workshops.

Youth wishing to audition must arrive by 10:00 am Monday, July 16th (late arrivals will not be admitted to the audition) and plan to stay for the entire 2 hour audition. Some cast members will be asked to stay for a rehearsal following the audition. There is no guarantee that everyone who auditions will be cast in the performance. Auditions and rehearsals will be held at Federated Church’s Gymnasium, 2704 15th Street in Columbus, and performances will be held at Central Community College’s Fine Arts Theatre on July 21st at 3pm and 5:30pm.

Tickets on Sale on Monday, July 16th online or Down in the Gallery from 1-5pm or At the Door.
